Children’s Book Review: Wizard And The Lizard Wacky Weather

We all wish that we could control things around us. No one is a stranger to having plans derailed by circumstances out of your control. So, it wasn't hard to relate to the struggle of Wizard and Buddy in this new book by Katie Reed. "Wizard and the Lizard Wacky Weather" is her second children's … Continue reading Children’s Book Review: Wizard And The Lizard Wacky Weather

From Stray To Loved, A Book Review

So I read a book by Pamela Schloesser Canepa! From Stray to Loved is a quick and enjoyable read about the imagined origin story of her rescue dog, Bixby.  Pamela's main focus has been in the sci-fi genre with her full-length books that are appropriate for teen and up. But, this time, she changed gears when she found herself wondering … Continue reading From Stray To Loved, A Book Review

A New Hair-Do Can Change Your Whole Outlook On Life

It is a universal truth (if it isn't, it should be!) that women change their hair when they want to control something in their lives. I'm no exception. I have been guilty of impulsive hair cutting in my bathroom. I have also been guilty of angry hair cutting after fighting with my husband.

My Thrive Experience

In a previous post, I mentioned that I have been using Thrive. So I thought I would use it as an excuse to write another review! I'm also very curious about others' experiences if anyone out there is also "thriving." I don't claim to be super knowledgable about Thrive. I just claim to like the … Continue reading My Thrive Experience

Discovering The World of Reptiles At Petsmart

It was a good excuse to take my bearded dragon on a field trip and, also, reptiles are cool. 🙂 The turn out was not too impressive but it was still fun. We wandered around and looked at the animals. We … Continue reading Discovering The World of Reptiles At Petsmart

The Buddy Bandana Is Perfect For Your Buddy (Or Not)

I am adding to this post due to the fact that after posting it, I received several comments from people (as can be seen below) who had negative shared experiences with the company. Not receiving their paid for products and not being able to successfully communicate with the company are the common themes. As a … Continue reading The Buddy Bandana Is Perfect For Your Buddy (Or Not)

A DIY Kit That Even I Can Handle

So, Lizzie and I got to make lip balm!

The Almond Company’s Almonds. It’s Like A Treat Bag For Humans!

Like every family, we have many different tastes. We range from Lizzie and Brian who like most things and me and Antwan who dislike most things. William and Kaleb are in the middle.  But, in my determination to get an honest review of my latest product, I didn't explain to the youngest three what they were … Continue reading The Almond Company’s Almonds.

Star Wars Ice For Dummies

In an effort to be a creative and fun mommy, I ordered a Star Wars ice tray!
